“Do you miss CoD at all? Nah. I think for a long time, playing Call of Duty, I was in a weird place where I really wanted to continue competing but I felt like I couldn’t because the game was just so bad. There were so many hackers,” Nick said. 

Nick noted that those hackers haven’t gone anyway, either. “I don’t know if it’s going to be any good man,” he added. “Hacking is still a problem, a big problem. Battle royale does not show promise.”

The FaZe Clan star did suggest that, at some point, his days of sticking with Apex Legends could come to an end, but he doesn’t expect it to happen anytime soon. 

He’ll certainly give Warzone 2.0 a go, but don’t be surprised if he hops off it to return to the Apex Games before long.
